Basil Twist makes the ephemeral tangible and the abstract accessible through his creation of iconic, visionary puppetry worlds with a remarkable range of style and scope. San Francisco born, trained in France and based in New York City, he has garnered an international reputation as an audacious designer, director and performer, his work appearing from intimate nightclubs to large orchestra halls and opera houses. Deeply musical in nature, he is a sought after collaborator for theater, dance, opera and film and has mentored countless young artists. His utterly unique approaches have been recognized with multiple awards/fellowships and critical acclaim and have furthered contemporary artistry and the technical craft of puppetry.
"No theatre artist in New York is showing more poetic force or technical skill than the puppeteer Basil Twist." -The New Yorker
